Monthly Market Reports

December 2014

22 December 2014

In the final AWI monthly market intelligence report for the 2014 calendar year we revisit wool developments with Russia, explore cotton and acrylic prices and touch on possible exchange rates for 2015.

AWI has now been working with wool processors in Russia and Belorussia for just on two years, working to lift from zero the amount of demand for wool in a region that just over 20 years ago took roughly a third of the Australian wool clip.

As has been widely reported, the Russian economy has faltered in a very serious way in recent months with a significant devaluation of the ruble. Meanwhile a major milestone has been reached that will place wool in good stead when the Russian economy does recover.
